PMP Cloud - Introduction

One of the greatest strengths of Patch Manager Plus Cloud is that it ensures that there are no security vulnerabilities in the network. It has Privacy Settings which you can use to get hold of the Enterprise's data privacy and security. It provides online support 24/7, while some provide support only during business hours. It also provides customized reports, email alerts and notifications, two-factor authentication and many more features. Patch Manager Plus provides training (in person) on request by the user, webinars, remote protection, and vulnerability scanning. This tool helps to achieve 100% patch compliance status across all systems. There's no doubt that Patch Manager Plus provides a meaningfully better overall value for the money, with a lower price to begin with.

Moreover, with security requirements constantly increasing, your organization needs an efficient way to patch multiple software platforms at once. An automated patch management solution should meet a few key requirements, including:

  • Continuous endpoint monitoring
  • A network-neutral architecture
  • Robust testing
  • Reporting capabilities

Highlighting Features of PMP Cloud

  1. Service Pack Deployment

    A configuration once defined can be used any number of times to deploy Service Packs to multiple systems simultaneously. The User can use an already downloaded service pack for installation. There are options to suspend, resume and view the status of Service Pack installation.

  2. Third-Party Patch Management

    The process of acquiring third-party applications is completely automated. Patch Manager Plus deploys third-party application patches along with Microsoft patches, all from a central point of control. It provides broadest third-party content and uses pre-built, tested, and ready to deploy packages for common Non-Microsoft applications.

  3. Patch Reports

    Insightful patch management reports to track every step of the patching process. This feature includes powerful patch reporting with one click, predefined patch management reports for your network security, custom views with 'Save as filter', schedule reports and target email notifications.

  4. Patch Desktops of Roaming Users

    You can patch the computers of roaming users. The agent installed in the User's computer updates the data and status information in the Patch Manager Plus server.

  5. Multi-Technician Support

  6. Multilanguage Support

  7. Role-Based Administration

    You can tailor make any number of roles in Patch Manager Plus and give them permissions of your choice based on your personalized needs. This includes delegating routine activities to chosen users with well-defined permission levels. You can define a scope for the users by limiting the User's permission to a specific set of computers.

  8. Two Factor Authentication

    Users will be prompted to sign-in with an additional verification step along with their default password. Patch Manager Plus supports two-factor authentication in four modes, Face ID/ Touch ID, Push Notification, Scan QR Mode, and Time-Based OTP.

  9. Active Directory Authentication

    Security Assertion Markup Language(SAML) is an XML-based framework which helps to achieve Single Sign-On(SSO). It gives faster, easier and trusted access to cloud applications without storing passwords or requiring users to log in to each application individually. Login can happen in two ways: i) User tries to log in at the Service Provider. (Zoho) ii) User tries to log in at the Identity Provider.

  10. Distribution Server

    This solves bandwidth related issues, improves efficiency and control level that admins can exercise on the remote machines, secures communication between the Server and the Agent, centralizes patch management of computers from a single console.

  11. Cloud Data Center, Security & Compliance

    To ensure that your data is protected, the security practices are grouped into four different areas: physical security, network security, people processes, and redundancy and business continuity. The data centers are hosted in the most secure facilities available today. The network security team and infrastructure helps protect your data against the most sophisticated electronic attacks.
